Overview of the Indian Mining Sector

Indian mining sector is largely fragmented, comprising several small scale operational mines; it is still dominated by the mining industries both public and private, which accounts for about 75% of the total mining production in India. Although the industry has the large number of employees including contract manpower totalling to about 9.5 lakhs in different trades of mining, the woeful shortage of skilled personnel in various mining trades is widely felt.

The key factors affecting the human resources and skill requirement in the Indian Mining Industry are technology up-gradation, increase in productivity, stringent environment and sustainable development framework, globalization and aging profile of workforce, and long gestation period for skill acquisition. Given the estimated increase in the mining output as well as the expected changes in the productivity levels, the total employment in the mining industry is estimated to increase to 11 lakhs by the year 2017 and 12 lakhs by the year 2025. These factors indicate good job prospects for Larry Car Driver, Furnace and other professionals in the industry.
